Rick Santorum’s win in four key conservative states has raised new questions for Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, who has consistently led in the polls and received increasingly favorable coverage from the mainstream media since he was erroneously declared the winner in the Iowa Caucus in January.

For Romney, walking away with the winner’s cup from the first primary in the nation was an endorsement of not just his candidacy, but his costly campaign strategy and this is likely to have influenced his campaign in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida. The outcome of the caucuses in Missouri, Colorado and Minnesota has pretty much nullified that endorsement, probably taking away with it the momentum it had lent to the Romney camp. What seemed to have worked in Iowa clearly didn’t, neither did it in much of the heartland.
